No action against student drug users in Sindh


 KARACHI JULY 28 (TNS): During the Sindh Assembly session Excise and Taxation Minister Mukesh Kumar Chawla expressed his inability to take action on an issue outside of his domain saying: “No action would be taken against the use of drugs at educational institutions across the province.

He accepted that there is a growing trend of drug use at private educational institutions in Sindh but said, “No one sells drugs inside the schools”.

He justified that his department was not the only one responsible for curbing narcotics’ use in the province and the police, anti-narcotics force, among others, were equally responsible for starting crackdowns against the menace.
